Bio and Links
I am a native of Utah and have been doing research for almost 25 years. I have a lot of resources at my fingertips. I also have access to lots of Utah records and know where you can get specific documents to help find your ancestors. Especially of interest, very early Ogden City Cemetery burial records.

I am extremely passionate about taking headstone photos in old cemeteries simply because the cemetery markers and tombstones are being disintegrated and destroyed by many elements. These markers and tombstones might be some of the oldest in Utah. The biggest threat the headstones face today are vandals. The other obvious threats are weather and time. Now is the time to photograph them while they are still intact. I encourage whomever would like to photograph and care for tombstones to do it now so that further generations will have a chance to view these headstones, if no way else than by photograph.

I welcome any questions you might have. Don't hesitate to contact me if you need me to help you. I have decided since I am asked so much to do genealogy research and information about obituaries, etc. that I must charge a nominal fee because it cost me gas and time. Obituary requests for Weber County is 1.00 for one or 5 for $4.00.

I am contemplating covering several other counties in genealogical research. Just ask me I might know how to help you get pointed in the right direction.

If you have any questions or requests please email me

For all the people whom have taken the
time to take photos for my memorials...a BIG THANKS!

Please don't create duplicate memorials for people I have taken photos or created memorials for...simply ask and I will gladly transfer ownership over to you, unless I am related to the same individual. Please be respectful and ASK ME before you take and post my photos to different web sites! You may use or post a copy of headstones to other websites as long as you post this info with it: Special permission has been given by

I am related to several individuals in my memorials. I WILL NOT turn over OWNERSHIP for them for obvious reasons.

Berntson vs Berntsen
A large arm of my tree is Swedish. I learned that children were baptized with a first name and a last name made of their father's first name and either "son" or "dotter" (abbreviated "dr) to the end. I think Norwegians often used "sen" instead. But all the male Swedish in my family were "son".

I don't know how the Berntson name became Berntsen. Surname was spelled Berntson from Rasmus Berntson (who was married to 2 women at the same time and fathered at least 11 children). He was born in Sweden in 1833, the son of Berndt Martensson (the son of Marten) and baptized with the last name of Berndtsson (the son of Berndt). He apparently dropped the "d" and one of the "ss" in his last name when he came to the US about 1862 - I don't know for certain when he arrived, but he married Laura Lundberg in Sweden in 1861, and 5 years later married Christine Hanson in Salt Lake City when he was 33 and she was 17. Both survived him.

More research
Hi Utah, Are the same person who does all the research detailing where people came from etc.? At present I am on William Kay, born in 1810 in Lancashire. If you are then I may have a brick wall in England for you to try and break down. It is one that has defeated me over the years. Just don't know what to try next. Also went to add your email address to my contact list and was told it is not a correct email address. Still you may have not wanted to get snowed under with requests like mine. I am quite prepared to pay you if you do decide to take up my challenge. Details can be obtained from
Keep up the good work, it is much appreciated.
Best regards, John.

RE: Was nice meeting you
It was nice getting to meet you too. I've followed your work for years and it's always good to see the person behind the work. I'm sure our paths will cross again.
